JJ started playing guitar at age 5 while growing up in central New Mexico. Passed down by his father, who also happened to be his greatest musical influence, he began learning the styles of blues, jazz and southern country rock hoping to inspire and uplift his listeners of all walks of life. In 2018, JJ came together with drummer Geno Jones and keyboardist and bassist Norman Toy alongside recent additions percussionist Devin Myers, bassist Jeff Garcia, flutist Bonnie Schmader, backup vocalist Abby Maxwell, and saxophonists John Gustafson and Chris Cushman to create the current incarnation of JJ and The Mystics.
Released on March 10, their latest album “Golden Shore” features 10 tracks designed to evoke joy and inspire listeners to laugh, cry and smile. An enjoyable extension of the success of their 2019 release “I Hold Your Hand”, JJ and The Mystics are establishing themselves at the forefront of a special brand of creative meditation.
The album offers poetic and uplifting songs designed to help listeners connect in a deep fashion. Ethereal instrumentals provide the wall of sound behind a deep set of inspiring vocals and lyrics that connect to humans of all cultures on a very personal level. Their most ambitious project to date, “Golden Shore” provides an array of musical perspectives and musical arrangements that challenge conventional views of contemporary genres.
“Golden Shore” was recorded with Bill Palmer from Torreon Studios in Santa Fe, New Mexico and band member Norman Toy’s studio in Sandia Park, New Mexico and Bud Bremner at Coastal Mastering Studios in Vancouver, BC. The album is a beautifully engineered release that reflects the passion of each member involved. Committed to spreading their message throughout 2020 and beyond, JJ and The Mystics plan to tour extensively in the Southwest US and working on an upcoming 2021 release.
